the idea of living ‘off the grid’ is a bit appealing to me – with solar power to provide the energy we need, a gigantic garden in the backyard, and maybe some chickens – wait, who am i kidding? i’m not going near a chicken coop. in the meantime, i do what i can to be ‘green’. i’m kind of a crazy recycler and have been known to pull recyclable items out of the trash (did i really just tell you that?). we are going strong with cloth diapering – SO much easier than i thought it would be..really. and i don’t go anywhere without my reusable shopping bags. here are a few of my favorite things that help me to be a little more friendly to mother earth. i’d like to keep her around for a while.
